Screen Shot 2014-03-10 at 11.10.53 AMLed by Vanguard University’s Black Student Union (BSU), Vanguard University offered multiple events to celebrate Black History Month (BHM).

Every week in February featured a BSU event to provide students with an opportunity to be part of the celebration and to learn more about black history. Events included the downtown Anaheim Black History Parade, a display of Afro-Latin cultures, Vanguard’s 2nd annual BHM Dinner, various BSU-coordinated chapels, a hip-hop dance night, a movie screening and an outreach event.

As the director of BSU, Crystal Todoroff led the creation and coordination for the events. Overall, Todoroff said she was very pleased and surprised by the good turnouts for so many of the events. This year’s BHM Dinner hosted more than 65 people. Because of the great turnout, which exceeded expectations by about 15 people, Director of Diversity Programming Coba Canales had to run buy more food for the last people in line.

Having the help of multiple BSU members and others was crucial for the success of these events, Todoroff said. Looking back at her full calendar for the month of February, Todoroff smiled and said that that she was happy with success of all the events and the continually diversifying culture of Vanguard University.
